Missing Maps is a collaboration between the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team. The project aims to map the most vulnerable places in the developing world so that NGOs and individuals can better respond to crises affecting these areas. Red Cross volunteers collected images of Haiti with action cameras mounted on cars. Photos uploaded to Mapillary were publicly distributed and used to edit OpenStreet Map.

The City of Espoo worked with GISPO, to organize an event for local cyclists to capture Mapillary images. The goal of the event was to test Mapillary for a broader street survey project to create a comprehensive database for maintaining bike lanes. Cyclists were asked to make note of safety hazards or poor road conditions for so the City could find the exact location of the problem.

We’ve been really happy to get involved the project by providing a street-level image platform that Ramani Huria have been using to get ground truths and make better maps. We sent them a camera to attach to their Bajaj (those small little vehicles that are half car, half motorbike), and have been helping them to process the images and upload them to Mapillary.

OpenPompeii, an European Commission project, conducted a hackathon about Pompeii as part of its goal to engage the community around archaelogy and history. The "Mapillary" track of the hackathon involved captuing images of Pompeii so people all over the world can enjoy a “virtual visit” of the site.
